At the Feb. 7 Clearwater City Council meeting, American Legion Auxiliary Post 7 President Gigi Janesik, along with other auxiliary members, presented Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos with a plaque for his dedication in promoting the organization's Poppy Program.

The mayor, in turn, presented post members with a proclamation designating Feb. 1 and 2, 2013 as Poppy Days in Clearwater.

The Buddy Poppy program has been in existence for 90 years. The small red flower is symbolic of the blood shed in World War I by millions of Allied soldiers and has evolved to honor all the soldiers who have died for our country.

Annually, paper poppies handmade by the veterans at Bay Pines VA Healthcare System are distributed and donations are accepted by the auxiliary for its welfare fund, which serves veterans and their families.
